something like that that would be. bad muslims something like that would that be. brought under these new rules yes anything under the community guidelines that goes so far as to make a derogatory or hate speech towards another ethnicity another race -- another gender in many cases -- is now covered under their new and a doctor terms i'm and their committee guidelines some people might wonder why it's taken facebook so long to do that that seems like a bit of a no brainer. so facebook has had a very long record of being quite reactive instead of proactive i think if they wait until the absolute last minute when they absolutely have to act. to make some of these changes this is just been the strategy that the company has used in the past and it took two weeks until after. the crisis the attack in christ church where there was so much. political outrage the wrist so much public pressure on them for them to finally say okay this is a big enough problem. though we've known it's been a problem on these platforms for years we know with people like
3:44 pm
alex jones of info wars we know they've been using these platforms to spread. white propaganda and i think it's just a reflection of their approach to a much broader range of issues data pririvacy securiy things like that and of course - we store am in recent days how - groups such as isis islamist extremist groups and put up. terrible shocking videos as well that were shed widely. online do facebook put a lot of resources into fighting that today. yes and i think this just goes back to a question of prior ties a shin i mean what many people don't understand is just how much. offensive content gets uploaded to facebook on a daily basis we are dealing with you know hundreds of millions of popostsf all sorts of things not just racist and hate speech but people t that upload extremely violent content people that upload inappropriate materials and so. i think we're starting to face one of the implications of having to to constantly connected reality which is just a volume problem they recently

added. a several thousand more employees to their content moderator section but i don't knowow if it's enough people to handle it. and and you know how do you distinguish between united these clay kopp hate groups -- based on racism and and and things like that compared. to you know somebody who might only share. stories about crimes committed by one ethnic group for example and they might. keepep on china and that will ge people a distorted. image about that group of people how do you. fight things like that because that's more to do with the algorithms. i think it's important to recognize that this issue while facebook is at the center of it is quite new wants to have a couple of different elements at play you have fake news so person who. let's give them the benefit of the doubt might not know that what they're sharing is fake but might be sharing it anyway that as one enormous problem with the majoririty o of people getting r news from social media. you then have digital communities doo you have the witcher a complpletely sepeparae thing where for example white
3:46 pm
supremacist groups. are congregating online and deliberately and with all with their with a lot of intention sharing hate speech you can also have the moderator approaches how facebook is going to try to deal with. all of these changes so then you have a moderator which is a i but also human being that has to make this decision as to whether or not. on the the abstract spectrum of you know is it appropriate or not that to make a call is of whether or not it violates community guidelines and then finally. we live in an adaptive digital environment where men eve these groups now seeing harsher penalties will adapt i think it's very naive to think that this will eliminate. this type of presence i think we as we've seen on other platforms these groups get smarter. they use different words the figure out ways to get around it so this is going to be an on going battle for the company okay rap published thank you very much indeed thanks common. now cathar has unveiled a new four hundred million euros museum designed by french architect john develop the lavish project is a way for the
